Bayern Munich are reportedly ready to break the bank for Tottenham Hotspur attacker and England skipper Harry Kane.
According to TZ, German champions Bayern Munich are prepared to break the €100 million barrier to land prolific Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane.
The England captain is one of the best number nines in the world and has been an infallible goalscorer for club and country for a number of years now. Currently 29, Kane has plenty of years in him and can spearhead Die Roten’s attack for years to come.
Julian Nagelsmann and co. parted ways with Robert Lewandowski last summer but have failed to replace him properly. Securing Sadio Mane gave them a reliable attacker, but the former Liverpool man is not the poacher like Lewandowski.
This lack of cutting-edge upfront has seen the Bavarians drop points in several matches in the Bundesliga this season. One could argue that had Lewandowski still been at the club, they would not be languishing in the third spot at the end of Matchday 9 in the Bundesliga.
Honorary president Uli Hoeness’s comments post the 2-2 draw against Borussia Dortmund made it clear that Bayern are aware of the lack of a natural goalscorer in their midst. Kane has now emerged as a target for Bayern ahead of the 2023/24 campaign.
The Tottenham striker is currently contracted at the N-17 until 2024 and is enjoying life under Antonio Conte. A proven goalscorer who has also shown his ability to fashion opportunities, Kante is today the complete package. Bayern will have to splash the cash but will find a few better options in the market than Kane.
The 29-year-old, for all his individual brilliance, is yet to win a major trophy at Tottenham. Another season without one could potentially make him rethink his career choices, especially since he will hit 30 years of age next year. Moving to the Allianz Arena will give him an exponentially higher chance of ending his distinguished career with silverware to show for it.
Bayern already have a core of exciting attackers in Mane, Leroy Sane, Jamal Musiala, Thomas Muller and Serge Gnabry among others. Adding Kane into the mix could be the final piece of the jigsaw.
